Is it grammatically correct to say, here's a photo from the party, or should it always be a photo of the party?

Thank you for any replies.

    They are both grammatical. Which you want to use depends on what you want to say. Sep 29, 2019 at 23:26

A photo from the party denotes a photograph of an event or location taken within the party (say, a photo of two people talking or a photo of gifts). A photo of the party has the connotation of containing a more complete picture of the party, e.g. a group photo of all of the guests.
